It’s that time of year again. To you, my Santa, I provide a guide of gift buying.

My favorite game franchise of all time is Halo. I have all the games and many of the novels (haven’t read anything released after Mortal Dictata and Silentium though) but I can never have enough Halo stuff. I also love Mass Effect, Pokemon, Gears of War, Zelda, and some other games I can’t think of at the moment.

Aside from gaming, I’m also a big fan of metal and hard rock music. If you want to go that route, you can get a good sense of the bands I like by scrolling through my personal Kinja blog. I’d Say my current favorites are Disturbed, Trivium, Killswitch Engage, Plini, and Threat Signal. Band merch is always cool.


I’m also a big Star Wars fan, just thought I’d throw that out there. I haven’t read any of the new canon novels yet, so that might be one route you could take. I still haven’t read the one GeoStar got me last year, but I’m going to read it soon, I promise!

I have a ton of shirts so I think I’d prefer a different sort of gift, unless it’s a really cool shirt (I’m size large). I moved a couple years ago and still have plenty of wall space for posters or other artwork, and some recently put up shelves with some space left for other goodies (a good portion of those shelves are occupied with Halo figures Shardik got me for 2016’s secret Santa, but that’s beside the point)!
